217 miles


My husband is driving the kids back from Glasgow today. I've had a couple of days to myself - done a lot of sewing, relaxed and now I'm missing them all like crazy. I know they'll be driving me mad again by tomorrow but the peace and quiet is getting a bit suffocating and I need hugs! Getting weepy about how much I need them all around me now. It's funny how the grass always seem greener but I think we all need a balance of time to ourselves as well as with our family.

Even the cat is stalking the windowsill awaiting their return...


And while we wait I've been sewing these little Liberty hexies:

  1. Case of can't live with them, can't live without? Nah! We can't live without them - but like when they pop out once in a while just to remind us what peace and quiet is.

  4. aww, I can totally relate! Mine were with their dad for two weeks. It was lovely, but I missed them. Until about 30 seconds after they came home!

  5. It is good to have time out and p,ease yourself. When you miss them you know that it is time to rejoin real life again! Di x

  6. How come your Liberty hexies look so neat - mine look like they got dragged from the depths of the bin by the time I have sewn them together!

    Hope everyone is home safe and sound xxx

  9. Hexies re a good hobby to wait for them! Give them loads of hugs when they A back. And when they drive you up the wall, read the post again .
